Default 8 flounder last night wading

After checking the local tide reports I went out late last night to a wading spot that I haven't fished in a while. Hit the water right at midnight and picked up my first fish within the first 20 feet. There was good amounts of bait and from my experience where there is bait alot of the time there are some flounder. I ended picking up 7 more nice flounder with the smallest being 15 inches and the largest at 19 1/4 inches. All of the fish were gigged in less than 2 feet of water. I saw a ton of redfish in pairs last night (about 14 fish total). It was great being out on the water and I was back at the truck a little after 2 this morning with 8 nice fish. A little shy of limiting out but I am always thankful for natures offerings. Tight lines guys

Nice.

Our flounder in Texas haven't returned to the bay system from spawning in the Gulf. I'm hoping by the end of next week they'll start to show up in good numbers to target them.

They will be small and thin until May but expecting a great year this year. No oil spill = down last year. Look for a big time gigging year

Very cool, nice fish! Were they all females by chance? All fish we took last trip were.
